Use Case 1

Logistic use cases on a large scale: how?

As of today, one of the most popular applications of drones is their usage in warehouses. Drones can automate inventory management, stocktaking, and goods transportation within warehouses, which can save a lot of time and effort for human workers. Drones can also operate in spaces that are difficult or dangerous for humans to access, such as high shelves or hazardous areas.

Another area where drones have gained attention in logistics is last-mile delivery. In urban areas, the last mile is often the most challenging and time-consuming part of the delivery process. Drones can be used to deliver packages directly to a customer’s doorstep, bypassing traffic and reducing delivery times. This can lead to faster and more efficient deliveries, improved customer satisfaction, and reduced transportation costs.

As the logistics industry continues to evolve and embrace new technologies, it is clear that drones will play an increasingly important role. In this panel, we will explore the latest developments in drone usage in warehouses and last-mile delivery and discuss the opportunities and challenges that come with this exciting technology from the user perspective.

Use Case 2

From the medical perspective: Today blood delivery – what will tomorrow look like?

The medical industry has always been at the forefront of technological innovation, and the usage of drones for medical delivery is no exception. Drones are now being used in hospitals and medical facilities to deliver essential medical supplies, including blood samples, medication, and other sensitive medical equipment.

One of the primary applications of drone delivery in healthcare is blood sample transportation. The timely delivery of blood samples is critical for patient care and diagnosis, and drones can provide an efficient and rapid means of transportation. With the help of drones, medical facilities can reduce the time it takes to transport blood samples from the patient to the lab for analysis, which can lead to faster and more accurate diagnoses and treatments.

In addition to blood sample delivery, drones are also being used for the transportation of medication and other medical supplies. Drones can deliver these supplies directly to patients in remote or hard-to-reach areas, providing them with access to vital medical resources that they might not have otherwise.

Looking forward, there is still much potential for innovation in the field of medical drone delivery. As the technology improves, we can expect to see more sophisticated and efficient drones capable of delivering larger payloads, covering greater distances, and navigating more complex environments. Additionally, the integration of AI and other advanced technologies could lead to drones with even greater autonomy, making medical delivery faster, safer, and more reliable.

In this panel, we will explore the current state of medical drone delivery and discuss the opportunities and challenges that come with this exciting technology. We will hear from medical and drone industry experts to learn about this industry’s needs and the latest developments in medical drone delivery.
